Title:Separate but not equal : race, education, and Prince Edward County, Virginia

Online exhibit documenting the history of the Prince Edward County, Virginia school segregation issues of the 1950s and 1960s. Most of the materials are taken from the papers of Dr. Edward H. Peeples, Emeritus professor at Virginia Commonwealth University, whose interest in the topic spans four decades. Included in this exhibit are images documenting the disparity between black and white county schools historically as well as contemporary photographs of the sites and subsequent events, two editorial cartoons about the situation, documents written by Dr. Peeples and others analyzing the issues, a selected bibliography of materials, and links to sites on the topic.
